COLDWATER – From textured paintings to upcycled projects to cardboard sculptures, Arts Alive invites artists of all ages and skill levels to submit their interpretations of “Cardboard Creations” in their upcoming themed gallery show which will be displayed at Tibbits Opera House August through October.
While the gallery theme is “Cardboard Creations,” it is up to the artist to interpret exactly what the phrase means to them as long as the entry incorporates cardboard in either the process or final product.
Artists may submit up to three pieces at $5 per submission. Paintings, photographs or drawings should be ready to hang using hanging wire. Sculpture or other mediums are accepted and encouraged as well. Prizes will be awarded to the top artists based on audience votes. Artists may also sell their work on commission.
To be included in this art show, artists should drop off all pieces at Tibbits’ Administration Office at 93 W. Chicago St before 5pm Monday, August 14. “Cardboard Creations” will be displayed through Monday, October 9 in the lower level art gallery at the historic Tibbits Opera House, located at 14 S. Hanchett St. in Coldwater MI.
The gallery shows rotate approximately every eight weeks. The final 2023 exhibit “Miniatures” will hang Oct 9-Dec 30, with the 2024 gallery themes to be released by November.
